Dustin McGowan held the Pirates to one run on three hits and three walks while striking out five over seven innings for the win on Sunday.
Since allowing six earned runs in a start back on April 23, McGowan has been pitching very well having surrendering only three runs over his last two outings. There was speculation that Marcus Stroman would be McGowan's replace if he had continued to struggle, but that has not been the case and the Blue Jays decided to promote their youngster anyway and use him out of the bullpen. For now McGowan's job is safe, but he is still not someone you want to have on your fantasy roster. He will look to continue moving in the right direction when he takes on the Angels on Friday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
